I love to genre hop. I really, really love to genre hop. In fact, picking a genre I can stay focused on until completion is the hardest part of getting anything done. I have dozens of WiPs kicking around on my hard drive. There are a couple that are longer (in an incomplete state) than … Continue reading New Project
That there is the first review for Thin Mire and I am over the moon! Whoever you are, Lonelycitydays, you deserve a giant slice of cake (gluten-free if necessary)! Thanks so much for the review! JP
Edited, published and with a lovely cover put together by Lady Orchid, it's up and ready to read! As I've mentioned before it's a dark fantasy novella. In a world ravaged by a celestial war, humanity have finally wriggled from their crawl spaces, only to find things are remarkably different to when they went into … Continue reading Thin Mire
Things have been going on and I sorta forgot to pop a link to Tunnel Rat on here. Whacking the picture will take you to Amazon if you fancy taking a look. Thanks for dropping in, JP
For a couple of years, I had a war gaming blog. It was just a bit of fun, something I used to show case my (admittedly terrible) painting skills and to host write-ups from the (consistently solo) battles I played. It was nothing special, received a grand total of 0 weekly views and slowly faded … Continue reading I Did a Thing
The festivities are out the way (I hope you all had a great time), the kids are back at school, and things are finally settling down to almost normal. Handily, that means I can get some work done. I've had a little look over Thin Mire (or whatever) just the once since finishing it. I … Continue reading Red Pen of Doom
Doof! Just finished the first draft of Thin Mire's Woes, hammered out a 'hurray for me' post, then WordPress ate it. Never mind! The book's finished. It'll need at least one edit/revision and so it probably won't be ready until early next year. If anyone's interested, it's a post-apocalyptic/swords-and-sorcery mash-up that's a lot more R.E … Continue reading That’s a Wrap!
Okay, back in August I entered into a 20k (possibly 30k) word challenge with my buddy. I posted about it on here then I disappeared (again). Obviously, I didn't make the word count. For those of you thinking about starting a similar adventure, I have a couple of ideas of things to avoid during the … Continue reading Stalled Timers
I said I'd get back to you guys in a couple of days re: the August write off (it's been the better part of a week, but I'm still going to take that as a win). It's been a pretty hectic few days and I managed to churn out more ideas than I can usually … Continue reading Word War One
I swapped a bit of chit chat with an old buddy of mine the other day. We haven't spoken for a bit, so it was nice to catch up. Things are going well for him. He's had a couple of promotions recently, rented a new pad and is looking to change his position into something … Continue reading Game on for Grandpa!
